SuspensionThe Porsche 928 can suffer a multitude of suspension problems that basically stem from 2 factors. Firstly the car is heavy - most 928s weight over 3500lbs. Secondly most 928s are now relatively old cars - all are over 15 years old.
The symptoms of problems are:
- the front of the car hitting the ground when either driving fast and/or over bumpy roads / speed bumps
- a floaty feel to the handling
